Nach massivem Druck des NS-Regimes auf die tschechoslowakische Regierung wurden diese aus der Ausstellung entfernt. Nach genau 30 Jahren wurde in Prag einen "Erinnerungsaustellung" an die Manes-Affäre durchgeführt, zu der dieser hier vorhandene Katalog heraugebracht wurde. Heartfield hat diesen Katalog ein Jahr später in Brünn eigenhändig signiert, drei Jahre vor seinem Tod. - John Heartfield (1891 in Schmargendorf b. Berlin - 1968 Ost-Berlin, eigentlich Helmut Herzfeld, fälschlicherweise manchmal "Herzfelde" geschrieben) war ein deutscher Maler, Graphiker, Fotomontagekünstler und Bühnenbildner. Er war ein Pionier an der Schnittstelle zwischen Kunst und Medien und gilt landläufig als der Erfinder der politischen Fotomontage. (wikipedia) - Umschlag etwas angestaubt und etwas berieben.

        Dialog-Buch für Fernseh-Film: "Die Geschichte von Joel Brand" von Heinar Kipphardt. Nr. 7256 (The Story of Joel Brand) [WITH 3 ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF MOVIE SCENES]

      Bavaria-Atelier-GmbH [1964], NP - Folio. [1], 79 leaves. Original blue leatherette folder with title label inserted on front cover. Original printed screenplay of the 1964 German television film "Die Geschichte von Joel Brand" (The Story of Joel Brand) telling the incredible story of a man who became known for his efforts during the Holocaust to save the Hungarian-Jewish community from deportation to the concentration camp at Auschwitz. Indeed, Joel Brand (1906-1964) is remembered for his negotiations with the German Schutzstaffel (SS) officer, Adolf Eichmann, to exchange one million Jews for trucks and other goods, a deal the Nazis proposed and called "Blut gegen Waren" ("blood for goods"). In the early 1940s, Brand was a member of the Hungarian Aid and Rescue Committee, an organization of Zionists who helped Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe escape to the relative safety of Hungary, before the German invasion of that country on 19 March 1944. Shortly after the invasion, Brand was summoned to a meeting with Eichmann, who had arrived in Budapest to oversee the deportation of the Jewish community. Eichmann asked Brand to help broker a deal between the SS and the United States or Britain, in which the Nazis would release up to one million Jews in exchange for 10,000 trucks for the Eastern front, and large quantities of soap, tea and coffee. Nothing came of the proposal, described by "The Times" as one of the most loathsome stories of the war. Historians believe the Germans intended it to serve as a cover for high-ranking Nazi officers, including Heinrich Himmler, to negotiate a peace deal with the Western Allies that would exclude the Soviet Union, and perhaps Adolf Hitler himself. Whatever its purpose, the proposal was thwarted by the Jewish Agency for Israel and a suspicious British government. The British arrested Brand in Turkey, where he had gone to inform them of Eichmann's offer, then leaked the story to the BBC, which broadcast it on 19 July 1944. The actions of the British government and the Jewish Agency - and the wider issue of why the Allies were unable to save the 435,000 Hungarian Jews deported to Auschwitz between May and July 1944 - have been the subject of bitter debate ever since. Hungarian Holocaust survivors have argued that the failure to act on Eichmann's offer was an unforgivable betrayal. Brand told a court in Jerusalem in 1953: "Rightly or wrongly, for better or for worse, I have cursed Jewry's official leaders ever since. All these things shall haunt me until my dying day. It is much more than a man can bear." He died in 1964 of liver disease brought on by alcoholism, reportedly a broken man. The TV movie was directed by Franz Peter Wirth, after a screenplay by Heinar Kipphardt. The leading roles of the cast were the following: Herwig Walter (Eichmann); Harry Kalenberg (Becker); Gerhard Jentsch (von Klages); Emil Stöhr (Joel Brand) and Doris Schade (Hansi Brand). Includes in plastic sleeve at rear, three original silver gelatin prints depicting three scenes from the movie. The actors featured are Herwig Walter (Eichmann), Emil Stöhr (Joel Brand) and Doris Schade (Hansi Brand). Each photograph measures 7 1/4 x 5", and has a tipped-in caption at verso. Text and captions in German. Folder and interior in overall very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
